She went on to say, “80% of the jobs that today’s kids will be applying for will require a high level of STEM education. The Connect A Million Minds (CAMM) program is designed to give kids and their parents easy ways to spark an interest in STEM. The CAMM website (www.connectamillionminds.com) contains an incredible amount of already available community programs that parents and their children can attend together.“
Time Warner Cable set up the site at www.connectamillionminds.com to promote their cause and to educate parents and community leaders to get involved and to help inform the youth about today's science and its applications. The site also contains information about after-school STEM projects and events, with introductions and opportunities for community activities and events like robotics competitions and local science fairs.
This project comes after years of dedicated service to their customers, offering cable TV programming, high-speed online services and digital phone services. They brought professional services into the home, on a personal level, providing quality home entertainment and affordable services.
